We wanted to make a getaway this month and spend a nice long weekend in London. But as they say, life got in the way. So sadly, we won’t be able to visit this fantastic place this moth. Nevertheless, we’ve decided to make a little hommage to London and share with you the 11 things we love about it.
Last weekend we stayed at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge Hotel in London. Although we are not very fond of big hotels (and believe me, this hotel is huge) we were pleasantly surprised. I have to admit that the staff was simply lovely. They were charming and made us feel like we were the only guests in the hotel. So I would say that the best thing in this hotel is its staff. No doubt. But we also liked the super nice views from our bedroom (picture above), the cool decor, the central location and its declicious cuisine.
Hello everyone! Happy Tuesday! Here you have some pics of our weekend in London. We always have a great time in this amazing city and come back home thinking about moving to London! At some point I think we will actually move there… Anyway! This time we discovered the East, made a new friend (hi Alba!) while arranging the first collaboration of this little blog of ours, went to a musical (The Jersey Boys, super fun!) and had brunch with friends in the nicest place of London (post about it coming soon!). But there was more…
Off to London! Whoop whoop! We are so excited because this weekend we are having our first blog-related meeting! :)
This is also the first time that we will stroll around Shoreditch, Pizza East maybe?
We will eat at Tokyo Diner, have a look at Uniqlo, go to the cinema and swim in the hotel swimmingpool (Our hotel has a great indoor swimmingpool, how cool is that?).
I hope you have a nice weekend! See you on Monday!
We forgot to tell you about the hotel where we stayed during our last London getaway! London is always tricky when it comes to accommodation. The hotel offer is overwhelming but it’s diffcult to find something nice, with a good price and a convenient location. Sometimes I feel I have to chose between seedy B&Bs or super expensive (but fabulous, let’s face it) hotels. Well, last time we got lucky and found The Grosvenor hotel.
Our last day in London was rainy and cold. I guess the city was all sad because we were leaving… We made a quick visit to St. Paul’s cathedral and the City. I didn’t know it but the City has a fascinating history and gorgeous churches. If you are visiting London, I highly recommend reading this book first. You will discover amazing new and hidden places.
Our second day in London was so bright, warm and lovely that we decided to get up early and have a nice shopping spree around Covent Garden before spending the day at the park.
